Hi! I received your message and here\'s my advice. I\'m assuming you have already applied to these schools but if not, my advice to you is to really work on developing your personal statement. You should definitely incorporate the fact that you speak 3 differenct languages. I would briefly touch on why your GPA and or LSAT score was low. I would not put too much emphasis on that though. My numbers were as follows: 2.95 undergrad GPA, 2.83 LSDAS GPA, 3.58 MBA GPA, LSAT1 143, LSAT2 147. Our numbers are somewhat similar. I also have 9 years work experience in the Legal field. As you can see, my numbers were not all that great but I worked really hard on my personal statement. And for Loyola, you should definitely submit the optional essay and participate in school tours/events. I was rejected on the spot at Depaul and John Marshall gave me the option to participate in their SCALES (Summer College to Assess Legal Skills) program. I believe its designed for students with potential but who did not necessarily do well on the LSAT. If you complete the course with a 2.5 GPA, they let you in. I\'m currently doing that program but at this point, I\'m only doing it to prepare for law school (at Loyola) as I am not attending JM. But it is a great program and if they give you the option to participate you should definitely take advantage of it. Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions.

Keep your head up!!

Don\'t let people like George try to define and what you can do. You have to believe in yourself and your abilities first and foremost regardless of some test score. Plus I think with an MBA and a great graduate level GPA, admissions officers won\'t dwell on your undergrad GPA as much and they won\'t view it as reflecting your intellectual capacities, unlike George. Good luck with your applications!!!
